Community Assessment Reporting Tool (CART)

This online tool generates a snapshot of U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) investment at the community level.

This innovative reference and mapping tool was created to help answer the question, “How is HUD investing in my community?” CART provides a snapshot of HUD investments across a community, cutting the time it takes to generate this information from several business days to minutes, and makes it easier to collect and share community-specific information with stakeholders.

The tool uses geospatial technology that is responsive and mobile-friendly to show the wide variety of HUD investments by city, state, county, metropolitan area, or congressional district. It also provides an interactive mapping interface that allows users to explore HUD investments within their community and see property- and grant-level detail at a variety of geographies. CART includes information on many of HUD’s major programs invested in communities across the country, including:

  • Community Planning and Development Competitive and Formula Grants
  • Rental Assistance through HUD's Multifamily programs, Housing Choice Vouchers, and Public Housing properties
  • Housing Counseling
  • Signature programs: Promise Zones, Strong Cities Strong Communities, and Rental Assistance Demonstration
  • Census demographic information
